republicans and the party establishment including those in congress and about candidates like michele bachmann or rick perry and the long history of the gifted remarks. it seemed to me that many of them, that is the republican establishment, was simply a phrase to condemn such rhetoric to speak in favor of social tolerance. b's leaders were not just uninformed about gay issues i think but frankly scared to death of any discussion of them and i think that plays into the hands of organized bigotry. what most analysts expected was going to be another election about economic issues and replacing much of the legislation passed by the obama administration like the election in 2010, was suddenly hijacked or the so-called values voters crowds and social issues were suddenly at the top of the republican list of priorities often getting the lion's share of attention during those endless number of debates and 2011. such as when a gay servicemember when asked a question during one of the republican debates. so in spite of the fact that in the race there were pro-gay writes candidates like congressman ron

and that is why they are doing. michele bachmann the other day was criticizing president obama, ashleigh, for saying that obama can go to new york, and he can go to new york and has time for letterman, but he does not have time for benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. and who is going to get you more votes? a tense meeting with benjamin netanyahu or go on letterman to get votes from that show? i think that the answer is cl r clear. >> the little box on the right-hand side of the screen is making news as well. i want to draw your attention, wolf, and the viewers to the box of the touchdown of the space shuttle "endeavour" flying this morning from kennedy space center making a stop for refueling and little as it goese final resting day in los angeles. this is the final trip, and the vistas are spectacular. we will take a break and talk more on the other side. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar.
bachmann or something. >> less the reporters you hear -- michele bachmann, santorum was up there, the gifts that keep on giving. >> bill: clarence, i have to ask you as the chief columnist for "the chicago tribune," one of many hats that you wear, the chicago teacher's strike is over. kids are back in school. who won that contest? >> i think in the short term, the teachers won. in the long run emanuel will. but this is a contest that, in my view, bill, had no winners. it just had losers which were the students because they lost over a week in the classroom that they sorely need. the problem is the city doesn't have any money. in fact, i've been -- i've been a journalist in chicago since 1969 under the original mayor daley, richard the first i have seen mayors come and go. one thing we all have in common is when the teachers want a new contract they go behind closed doors and the mayors give them whatever they want to try to avoid a strike. they used to have strikes so commonly that students would just expect them
. for the republican primary candidates, there were some that were higher than others. michelle bachmann, i think, had the highest. >> we had a self-imposed michelle bachmann " at some point during the debates. -- michelle bachmann quota during the debates. >> but again, i do not know what it tells you. it does provide something interesting to look at. it does provide links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for all of the presidential candidates. >> george mason university. i think we have seen both candidates in a vulnerable position of being challenged on flip-flops' of position or permanence not kept. i have noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, is to not attempt to say, well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact that i look at now are not the fact that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are various levels of equivocation and bluff. one recently was when president obama was, i think, talking to a latino group who challenged him on his failure to keep the p
michele bachmann and jim dement, ryan fired up the crowd when he took aim at the health care law mandate requiring insurers provide free family planning coverage including birth control. >> this is into the threat and insult to one religious group. it is a threat and insult to every religious group. when mitt romney is elected, we will get to work on day one to reappeal that mandate and all of p obamacare. >> i'm joined now by deputy political editor who was at that summit earlier. good afternoon to you. paul ryan helped to fire up the base no doubt. how does that kind of rhetoric play to the 1 million or so undecided voters most of whom we know are not socially conservative? >> we know the health care mandate is not very popular even with independents. but most people have also indicated that they want to move on after the supreme court ruling. and i'm not sure how much weight this really carries considering that mitt romney also strongly supported a mandate as part of his health care reform plan in massachusetts. >> they certainly were not in com any's corner during the primaries. what
, you had herman cain newt gingrich, and michele bachmann -- >> 49% of the country just won't latch on to it. >> it's like that bubble you talk about. they think their narrow view is everybody. >> john: this leads back to this paul ryan thing we have talked about fleetingly over the last few days. paul ryan made a statement in colorado last friday about medical marijuana. and congressman ryan said my personal position has been let the states decide what to do about these things. that is the paul ryan point of view. well, paul ryan said that, and right away mitt romney's people were doing damage control, and now saying that paul ryan -- >> he was high when he said it. [ laughter ] >> john: no, he completely agrees on keeping marijuana illegal, and people who smoke it even if they are sick and have cancer deserve to go to jail. and in the 2007 campaign we have a clip where a very sick man -- a fellow who was -- had cancer, in a wheelchair met governor romney at a campaign event, and asked him what he should do. governor romneys response was so callus and cowardly
and these fringe people were allowed to stay in the race so long that michelle bachmann wasn't chased out, it says that we all feel we're just saddled with this and when a bath mat should have been able to beat obama based on the polls and romney is looking like it's not it, i would be panicked more than just at the beginning of every month. i would never stop wearing depe depends. >> dave wood, beyond the strategy and the seeming lack thereof, the other thing i thought romney's comments betrayed were a really naive understanding of the arab world and also an incredibly vague foreign policy platform. rich whimson, romney's senior adviser on these matters gave an interview where he tried to outline some specifics and for me what that did was underscore how completely obscure and vague romney has been and how incapable he's been in terms of elucidating a foreign policy platform any way different from that of the president. >> yeah. i've talked to rich williams. he's a smart guy, but what bother med about this week was, the romney campaign's emphasis on returning to a strong america. and trying to po

, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: joe, give you the last word. >> whatever divisions there are they will be unified by the republican
